york, consider the national polling. the north, midwest and west back obama. the south is with romney, or is against obama. you can see this division as it works its way down from southwest pennsylvania, including part of ohio, down through west virginia. you see it in the agitation that romney and his forces are working in their ads and speeches. donald trump, who says is president is an illegal immigrant, now doing robocalls for romney. john sununu keeps calling the president lazy and un-american. and topping it off, we heard romney out here in ohio today saying the president is bent on, get this, revenge. let's begin tonight with my interview with vice president biden. i started with that high octane issue of auto production right here in ohio. >> thank you, mr. vice president, for this time. here we are in ohio. what do you make of this republican ad that's been out there running for romney saying that chrysler is going to take jeep out of this state and send it to china? >> here are the people right in this state, toledo and other places, just back up on their feet, jeep is hirin
, this country of ours will be divided. half the country will vote for president obama and keep faith with the current direction. half will vote with varying degrees of anger to depart from it. to who knows in one of the various directions governor romney has offered. with him you need a weather map to know what road he's going to take on any given day. the question looms now of how this country will get together the day after tomorrow. i always think that's important, but it's more important now because of our form of government, the division in the country. barring a landslide, it's going to take both sides to move ahead to meet debt reduction, immigration, education, and competition in an increasingly competitive world. both sides. got it? whatever happens tomorrow, we need a working national unity when it's over. that's a fact. our two guests are the best. nbc's political director chuck todd and howard fineman. let's look at this. let's start right now and look at the last words. here's romney today in lynchburg. >> paul ryan and my vision is to limit government rather than limiti
obama buries romney. let's play "hardball." ♪ >>> good evening. i'm chris matthews in washington. let me start with this. the hurricane and this president. hemingway called it grace under pressure, the highly educated call it good government. the american people who count the most call president obama's handling of tropical storm sandy positive. 4 out of 5 give him good marks as first responder in the crisis. the question before the election is whether this huge story about disaster and executive response is the last big one before we vote. is it the october surprise? the black swan that swoops out of nowhere and changes everything? as scarlet o'hara said, there's always tomorrow. chuck todd is nbc's political director and john heilemann is "new york magazine's" national affairs editor and an msnbc analyst. i guess that's my question to start, but let me give you this first. the president this afternoon bagged a big endorsement, new york mayor mike bloomberg, who is always interesting to watch. he cited the president's stance on climate change as the major reason. he writes, quote, one b
"hardball." ♪ >>> good evening. i'm chris matthews in washington. let me start with this. president obama has got a spring in his step this friday before the election propelled by a good week on the job and 171,000 new jobs in this morning's report. he's out there in ohio fighting the good fight. i only make predictions when people make me make them, but the trajectory, the momentum, now seems pro-obama. pennsylvania will hold, ohio looks good but close, and all the battlegrounds look winnable for the president. the huge question is turnout, that and rational self-interest. the young who believe in science, women who believe in protecting their rights, latinos who can see a brighter future with a supportive president all need to get out, show up, and vote. there's no reward for a failure. in a free society, a democratic society is a failure, deeply personal, you blew it if you don't vote. let's see where it stands. i'm joined by mother jones washington bureau chief david corn and joy reid. do you think i'm a little strong? >> no. >> i don't want to talk to anybody after this election if t
because of the emphasis on early voting for the obama campaign, but one of my theories on this has always been both sides could be right about their own turnout. they just have been i think incorrect assumption because they're right on their turnout model that the other guy is wrong. >> this is a time before the exit polls really start coming in when you have to call what i think of as my golden sources. these are people state by state -- >> and they're state guys. >> state guys and gals that i have dealt with for a long time and that i trust. i talked to the guy i trust the most in pennsylvania, our home state. he's a republican. he said that on his side, he said turnout in republican areas in pennsylvania is very high. and that's good for him. but he also told me that from what -- >> is this bob asher? >> i'm not telling you who it is. but on the democratic side, he said that the turnout in democratic areas, including philadelphia, including an african-american precinct and wards and so forth is also very high. predicting a big turnout in pennsylvania. so in a way both sides -- it sound
to get those state by state results. some that hit me. obama, the champ, was not just hold his own, he was winning. then the long rounds where he kept it up. i saw this happen last night because i never saw it coming. i saw romney's big win in the first debate. i saw the president's sterling bipartisan work on tropical storm sandy. i never saw what came about last night, this powerful swing of support to the president. not just him but his party in senate races across the country. our question tonight, what happened? but i can't begin our usual political discussion tonight without a strong sad personal note. i was on last night for ten hours straight from 5:00 in the evening till 3:00 in the morning. a few minutes to 3:00 i said something terrible. i said that i was glad about the coming of tropical storm sandy because of its impact on this national campaign. it was a terrible thing to say, period. i can say it was because i was tired but the fact is i wasn't thinking of the horrible mess this storm has made of people's lives up here in new york and elsewhere. it's not until you read t
president obama. it's another tactic he's using. he's won on this issue. >> dorian warren gets tonight's last word. thanks, dorian. >> thank you. word." up next, "hardball" with chris matthews. >> jersey boys. let's play "hardball." >>> good evening. i'm chris matthews in washington. let me start with this. we've heard the story, how in the winter of world war i, the two sides, german and english, climbed out of their trenches and sang christmas carols together. well, today, an echo of that spirit rose over the jersey shore. two politicians of different parties figuring out how to do their jobs together. say what you will, debbie downers of the world, there comes a time when the grown-ups got to do their jobs. so they put away their toys, their big birds and their bayonets and do the business they got elected to. i love politics, and today is one of the reasons. it's not all stupid ads on tv, it's not all handlers and bs artists. some days it's just a job, and some days like today, it's the most important job we've got. joining me to talk about this, this remarkable political m
says obama bought the election. let's play "hardball." ♪ >>> good evening. i'm chris matthews in washington. let me start tonight with this. you'd have thought that mitt romney would have stopped this crap. during the campaign he was out there selling it, that president obama was buying black votes by dumping the work requirement for welfare. remember that little sugar plum? it had it all, the accusation that minority voters could be scarfed up with a little chump change. throw them a little something and the votes would come pouring back. here he was yesterday, romney, schmoozing with his donor base about how the whole thing went wrong. it seems the president did a little wholesale purchasing, he said. he bought the minority with health care and bought the students with free student loans. great work there, mitt. you're at it again with your double barrels. one, claims that aren't true, and, two, that old dog whistle of yours. fact. people in the income bracket you mentioned have to kick in to get health care. fact, students still have to play interest on their college loan.
that president obama said just that at his press conference. give the middle class their tax cuts, speaker boehner. cut it loose so they can go christmas shopping, senator mcconnell. it's what the people voted for. that's why they voted for me. that's the president talking. we are joined now by nbc's chief white house correspondent chuck todd. thanks for joining us tonight. this was a hot pressure cooker press conference and you were in the middle. let's talk about the president's tactic. it looks like he's got one. here he is sticking out his message of defending the middle class today, sticking to it. he practically dared the republicans to hold tax cuts for the middle class hostage. he went back to that word hostage. let's take a look. >> the other option is to pass a law right now that would prevent any tax hike whatsoever on the first $250,000 of everybody's income. i hope republicans in the house come on board, too. we should not hold the middle class hostage while we debate tax cuts for the wealthy. the most important step we can take right now, i think the foundation for a deal tha
percentage steadily is rising. here is how the 2012 election broke down by racial group. president obama won just 39% of the white vote down from 49% 43% last time, but he outperforms by so much in other demographic groups, he overcomes the white voter deficit. obama got 93% of the black vote on tuesday, 71% of the latino vote. by the way, that's a big difference from the way "w" did it. "w" did pretty well among latino voters, and he got 73% of the asian vote. bob shrum, i want to start with this. we all know looking around and who we know, the country is changing. a lot more people moving to this country from the south, less so from europe, more from asia, south asia, india, pakistan, from the far east, the asian pacific. this country is getting to be more like the world. >> i think part of the tea party reaction, the give our country back or take our country back, is a reflection of people's paranoia about the changing composition of the country. we're going to become a majority nonwhite nation. white men are now only 33% of the electorate, and that's the heart of republican strength. wha
for combat, barack obama takes the felt against the very forces who fought to cut him down. he will be a democratic president. he will be fair on tacks. he will use those taxes to rebuild this country and educate it up to the tough competition we face in the 21st century. he's backed by a majority of the american people, indeed re-elects as the only democrat with the civil war with two majority elections behind him with an undergraded mandate at his back. today he marched on to the field of combat against an uncertain foe. some ready to deal, others hiding in their bunkers waiting for something, anything, to save them from the terrifying sight of 25 2 1st century electoral reality. i'm joined by dee dee myers, former clinton white house press secretary and david corn, the author of the ebook, 47 percent. today the president stressed he's willing to compromise to avoid the consequence of going over that so-called fiscal cliff at the end of the year. however, he said he's stigeing to his guns, that the wealthiest need to be asked to pay a bit more. let's watch. >> i want to be cl
like those things. and it certainly didn't get thrilled when obama won the first time. pretty miserable now that he's won again. in fact, it can't believe it. it looks at your america, this world of the actual election results, as a stranger in a strange land. for days now it's been in a daze wandering around wondering, what gimmick switched the channels? what odd happening bounced them from the world they believed in, saw all around them, to the world they find themselves so suddenly and shockingly now a part of, the world that is truly undeniably america. i'm joined to talk about this by the former rnc chair michael steele and mother jones washington bureau chief david corn. he's the author of the ebook "47 percent ,"a great book and a great get. he's an msnbc political analyst. let's start now. in politico jonathan martin describes the gop media cocoon writing, in this reassuring conservative pocket universe rasmussen polls are gospel, the benghazi controversy is worse than watergate, fair and balanced isn't just marketing, and dick morris is a political seer. this morning former hou
had come out as it did because obama's team had outplayed and outfoxed his. he should have because that's the truth. rather, he said that obama had won the second term essentially through bribery. well, look, i have three rules for both parties as they converge now to do their jobs. respect the voter, respect each other's offices, and search hard for common ground. those are what we should be doing, and that should be the way we're guiding our country's conversation today. not trashing the people who voted against you. but respecting the fact that they did for your own good. david corn is washington bureau chief for mother jones, and joy reid is managing editor of the grio. both are msnbc political analysts. look, let's take a look at some of the stuff from john mccain here. it's been four years since john mccain lost his presidential bid. just ten days since mitt romney lost, but they still are both holding a grudge apparently against the president in their bitter comments this week. listen to romney's conference call about obama's gifts and mccain's complaints about obama ally u.
